First Journées grégoriennes
at Saint-Viateur Church in Outremont

The very first Journées grégoriennes at Saint-Viateur Church in Outremont (Montreal, Quebec) took place on Saturday and Sunday, April 12th and 13th 2008. Twenty-five participants from Quebec City, Montreal, Cornwall, and Hamilton took part in Gregorian chant workshops led by Jean-Pierre Noiseux and Alain Vadeboncoeur. On Saturday night, the Schola Saint Grégoire and the Ensemble Virga presented a joint concert on the theme of Christ’s Resurrection, which was extremely well received by some fifty enthusiastic listeners. On Sunday morning, 16 participants joined their voices together to celebrate the Mass for the Fourth Sunday after Easter.

Mark your calendars for the second Journées grégoriennes at Saint-Viateur Church in Montreal, on May 9th and 10th 2009.
